So, if you mix everything together, you get...

05/01/15 - Avengers: Age of Ultron
07/17/15 - Ant-Man
03/25/16 - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
05/06/16 - Captain America: Civil War
08/05/16 - Suicide Squad
11/04/16 - Doctor Strange
05/05/17 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
06/23/17 - Wonder Woman
07/28/17 - Thor: Ragnarok
11/03/17 - Black Panther
11/17/17 - Justice League (Part I)
03/23/18 - The Flash
05/04/18 - Avengers: Infinity War (Part I)
07/06/18 - Captain Marvel
07/27/18 - Aquaman
11/02/18 - Inhumans
04/05/19 - Shazam
05/03/19 - Avengers: Infinity War (Part II)
06/14/19 - Justice League (Part II)
04/03/20 - Cyborg
06/19/20 - Green Lantern

- Just stop and look at that for a minute.  That is ridiculous.  And it doesn't even include the Fox stuff or the Sony Spider-Man stuff.  At what point does regular, non-fanboy America put their hands up and say "enough already with all the super-hero movies!"

- One more thing, made clear again by the Marvel announcements today - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still a horrible movie title.   Great name for a legal essay examining the Batman v Superman court case though.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

Some Walgreens news from Walgreens Toy Buyer Steve Anne:

Oct 23:
Chicago area starting to get some Star Wars Black back in stock. Other areas of the country starting next week.

Oct 25
Star Wars Black 6" - Wave 5 and Proto Boba Fett hitting our warehouses now. Wave 6 on order and following a couple months after.

Thanks to a push from BB's Aaron Paul, the KEEP BB on the shelves at TRU is up over 30k.

I'll guess that the figures will eventually come back, but not until all of this has died down and the big media won't notice.  :P

Guess you can add SOFUBI Chewie to the family.

I am so looking forward to the thirty-seventh installment of SEVEN HUNDRED HOBO NAMES

I have this sneaky feeling that Hobo Name 363 is going to rock (although it will be hard to top "Sweet Daddy Champagne").

Still waiting...  just 24 installments to go!

Stll waiting...  just 14 installments to go!

Joe Defender / GI Joe - The Black Series?

Saw this rumored on Twitter so I thought I'd post it here sine HissTank is usually pretty reputable...
G.I. Joe Black Series Snake Eyes with Timber SDCC 2015 Launch Date?

You've been warned. ;)

Season 5 Spoilers here.

I know it bugs some people, but I love it when they change stuff from the books, especially if it means we get more [spoiler] and to see him with our Mother of Dragons Khaleesi?  Awesome.

Also been reading a bit about the planned flashbacks that are coming in Season 5.  Interesting choice to go that route, but again it's a nice way to stall the main story to help spread the books out without losing certian characters for large chunks of the season. 

Deep down I'm hoping for a Ned/Lyanna/Tower of Joy flashback just to see Sean Bean again... but that might give away too much book plot if they showed us who/what was there.  :-X

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 2

Have yet to see these at retail here in the US.

I'm really surprised there has not been more of an outcry about this wave. I mean, it NEVER hit here AT ALL. Anywhere.

Just an FYI that Hasbro has discontinued this wave (and 6" Wave 1 finally), meaning they are taking no new orders and whatever is in the distribution chain is it for this wave.

If you haven't seen Anakin/Clone at retail yet and really want the black/orange packaged versions, you may want to go ahead and grab them from HasbroToyShop or another online shop to be sure you get them.

Just a reminder that EE's "Buy Three, Get One Free" ReAction sale ends tomorrow...

For a limited time (10/15-10/21), Funko Pop Vinyl figures and Reaction Figures are Buy Three, Get One Free at Entertainment Earth. 

edit: nevermind - the sale has been extended another week.  Now ends on 10/28 thanks to the great response they are getting to the sale...

Back to talking to myself...  :-[

Also still need to track down the Heavyarms/Sandrock conversion kit.  Waiting for a good deal on ebay for that since I'd need to pick up a second H-arms and Sandrock to convert so I can have both versions.   ::)

Done!  Around Labor Day, I found a really good deal on a second Gundam HeavyArms and Gundam Sandrock that was too good to pass up.  That meant I definitely had to track down the Season One conversion H-Arms/Sandrock kit.  Was patient and found a BIN auction below my target price so I pulled the trigger.

Kit arrived today, meaning I am 100% caught up, including all the Japan-exclusive releases for Gundam Wing.  Now I can go to work completing the Gundam Wing - Endless Waltz stuff....  and of course, be careful not to stray into any of the other Gundam series - Zeta, G-Fighter, etc. ;)

Anybody got a sense for how Walgreen's distribution network works and how quickly they restock? 

Earlier this Fall, the Walgreens toy buyer sent out some tweets that revealed all of their initial stock had been shipped to the stores, but there are another 40k coming to stores in November for re-stocking (see below).

This past weekend, the Walgreens toy buyer tweeted that solid cases of eight 6" ProtoFetts will hit over 5,000 stores starting in November.
